Still think we are a bit light in the backs.

Agreed distant dog a couple of injuries in the backs would leave us short of cover  and dependant on the dual reg. Still not sold on that one. But on the whole the squad is shaping up nicely. My personel wishlist would include a strong running, line busting Centre, second row. possibly a Kiwi, Samoan, or Tongan player in the Sonny Wakeroo ( sorry about the spelling) mold. :yahoo:

According to The Press, JK has stated that we will have half a dozen Giants players doing pre-season with us and will remain with us throughout the season. So that will take us to 24 and he also says he is still on the look out for a couple more.

Squad is looking good,got plenty of cover too,sounds like one or two still to come maybe from World Cup,think Davies is out for a bit so might need the few extra second rowers,although some are utility players,would expect applegarth at loose with perhaps Blake swapping there from hooker etc,be good to have that creativity from s/o,s/h,hooker and loose then bringing applegarth on to win the middle battle if needed

Seeing JK's comments this week about where he sees Brevs future, think he can be put into the centre block, covering second row.

backs still a major concern for me. still at least one centre and a winger or two short.

Could also do with another prop and cover at half back - Hopefully the giants have a few quality reserves to send us for the season, if possible id love to see Mullally back at the mount next year.

Like a few other clubs, we will be a bit of an unknown quantity next season, and the annual "whos that" debate on boxing day will be in overdrive this year with so many new faces.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

Always a headscratcher BTJ, especially if it's been a good christmas. Mind you, at my age, I'm still asking the question come July.

One more threequarter in there, and we're looking extremely strong indeed. I'll wager that this seasons squad will have been put together at a far lower cost than last seasons, too.

Doubt it, I am sure there has been some budget stretching to get the squad needed to be competitive next season. The players that have left I imagine have gone for wages probably  we could only dream of paying. Next seasons squad will have cost a similar amount to last seasons if not a bit extra.

Terminator, Why do you think that the squad will have been put together at a far lower cost than last season?

Mainly because I heard quite a number of rumours from some fairly credible sources that we were offering reduced terms for this season. Whether they're accurate or not, I don't know? We've also lost some players who would have been amongst the highest paid at the club - Flanagan, Walton and Moore in particular, and have seemingly replaced them with guys who have a slightly lower profile. Just the way it seems to me?

Hasn't the money distributed to Championship clubs also been reduced this season? If so, it would only make sense to operate on a reduced budget unless anyone was anticipating a surge in income from elsewhere.
